    Book Reviews

    I love to read and review books and have a very broad range of genre interests. Reading and reviewing Advanced Review Copies is also something that I greatly enjoy and am always more than happy to do. I express my opinions openly and love to share the great new books and authors that I come across. I am more than thrilled to do reviews for any author and/or publisher.

That One Word


That One Word — #3297

I stood at the altar in front of the couple.I have witnessed many weddings. The dresses, tuxedos, the church decorations, and the food are what most focus on.

I was enamored by the word,
…that one word.

The one word answer to the question,
“…do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?”

I expected the typical, “I do.”

Those two words made both famous and infamous.

I was not expecting his answer.

A voice loud and clear rang out with one word.

It reverberated from the ceiling as his one word, filled with resolve, carried his answer throughout the church.


It was A MountainWings Moment.

Far too often, “we do” but not absolutely.

Our commitment is filled with ifs, ands, and buts.

We do as long as it’s convenient.
We do as long as it benefits us.
We do as long as it’s not painful.
We do as long as they remain beautiful or handsome.
We do as long as they keep their figure.
We do as long as the bills are paid.
We do as long they stay healthy.
We do as long as no one more exciting looks our way.
We do as long as it suits us.

What things or people in life are we truly committed to?

To whom have we really said and meant, “Absolutely.”

Is this the way a man and a woman should enter into marriage?

Should they feel that level of commitment?

Should they really believe that the only way they would ever separate is by death?

Did Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Loney actually believe that?

This is just wonderful – ABSOLUTELY! We all need to have this level of commitment within our marriages. I pray for this for all marriages in Jesus’ name.
